Sundays in the Sun

Today we took to the great outdoors with our picnic, pup and sense of adventure.  We searched for a new walk to try in the Dublin area and came across this:

The Hellfire Club

Suffice to say, I raised my eyebrows when my husband suggested we head up to this particular spot.  The history is pretty interesting but I'll leave that for you to read up on at the link above.  The main info is that there is an old hunting lodge building (1725) at the top of Montpelier hill that overlooks the city of Dublin with panoramic views.  It is a stunning walk with the city below and other hills all around.  Here are a few snaps of our day:

 Our picnic spot - a few handy tree stumps, some PB&J  sandwiches, grapes and a treat or two for Jozy...


  1. Great Pics! Sounds like fun!

  2. Beautiful photos, Fiona! My favorite is Chris sitting on the stump. It looks straight out of an Anthropologie catalog. So great!
